Moths and Butterflies: Anyone interested in contributing to wikipedia
I am not a North-American, but seeing I am working on creating moth and butterfly pages on wikipedia, I visit this great website quite often and always look here first when I am writing an article on a North-American species. Since this site has a lot of experienced contributors, I am wondering if there are any people I could interest in helping out with article creation and improvement on wikipedia. There are only few people working on insect related articles and any help would be greatly appreciated. I am working on moths and butterflies mainly, so my main interest would be to get some help in that department.
It would also be amazing if people would be willing to donate some pictures (especially for species we don't have pictures of at the moment). Donating pics, would mean they would have to be released under a creative commons licence without restricting commercial use though. A lot of the North-American species don't have freely available pictures anywhere on the net, which is quite a strange phenomenon, because I have found tons of free pictures of European, Australian and even Asian species. It seems North-Americans are more reluctant to release their pics under a free licence for some reason. But I'm hoping some people on Bug Guide are willing to help out for the greater good.. :)
Cheers and keep up the good work with this great site!
